Description
Hard on the heels of the triumph Under Orders comes Dead Heat, set against the backdrop of Britain's famed 2,000 Guineas stakes.Max Moreton is a rising culinary star, and his Newmarket restaurant, the Hay Net, has brought him great acclaim and a widening circle of admirers. But when nearly all the guests who enjoyed one of his meals at a private catered affair fall victim to severe food poisoning, his kitchen is shuttered and his reputation takes a hit. Scrambling to meet his next obligation, an exclusive luncheon for forty in the glass-fronted private boxes at the 2,000 Guineas, Max must overcome the previous evening's disaster and provide the new American sponsors of the year's first Classic race with a day to remember. Then a bomb blast rips through the private boxes, killing some of Max's trusted staff and many of the guests. As survivors are rushed to the hospital, he is left to survey the ruins of the grandstand–and of his career. Two close calls are too close for comfort, and Max vows to protect his name, and himself, before it's too late.
